AI rocks? It does when you power up the Google Home MAX smart speaker

This year, you can bet that smart speakers, or home hubs, or smart home speakers or whatever those things are called, are going to be a big hit this holiday season. Let’s face it, talking to an inanimate object and having it order you a pizza and turn on the lights is a special kind of magic. But what’s even more magical? When it can also rattle the windows with high-quality sound. And for that, we found a great option: The Google Home MAX.

Because, who knew that Google’s A.I. could really rock out? The nearly 12-pound MAX lets the good times roll, with a pair of 4.5-inch woofers helped out by a pair of tweeters, and we have to say, it sounds pretty great. And, of course, it also functions as a smart home hub, although when the volume is up, you do have to kinda yell at it to get its attention. Not cheap, though: At $400 bucks it’s as pricey as some complete audio systems. Review:
